This park is on the shore of a long narrow rectangular lake which is obviously an old branch of the river. There is a small amusement park. Apart from that, just long paths along the rather boring shore of the lake. There is a hump-backed pedestrian bridge in the middle of the lake. You get a good view of the... More

It's a rectangle shaped man-made lake and the total length of the perimeter around the lake is about 8 some kms. One can choose to walk the whole circle, or 1/3 or 2/ of the circle as there are bridges across the lake at different segments.

It is approximately 8 km around the lake. Locals bring their kids to spend the afternoon there. There are some nice bar and restaurant... More

As no one speak English in the area, we had to watch the local people do and figured it ourselves. The park is well maintained, worth a visit, except the toilet!

This park is open to the public 24/7, as far as I could judge. It stretches around the 南湖 (Nánhú - southern lake) on which you can also rent a pedalo. The running track around the lake is measured, so, if you're here for a longer time, you could measure your improving performance over time without any devices, if you're... More

My visit to Nanhu Lake Park was not the first. It is a nice walk and to view the bridges is picturesque. In the summer there are many things to see there and in the Chinese New Year they have a huge firework display. I enjoyed standing on the bridges looking along the lake. It's huge!! There are places to... More
